Asymmetrical fan blades? Yup. And there you have it. Details like this sum up the all-new next generation MacBook Pro with Retina Display ($2,199). Just announced, the MacBook Pro with Retina offers — bone stock — a 2.3GHz quad-core i7 processor (configurable up to 2.7 with 3.7Ghz Turbo Boost on demand), 256GB-768GB of solid state storage, 8GB-16GB of RAM, a GeForce GT 650M 1GB video processor with next-generation Kepler graphic, and last but anything but least, a stunning new 15.4″ 2880×1800 Retina display with a 75% reduction in glare from its shine-happy predecessor.
In the size department, Apple has sent the MacBook Pro to CrossFit resulting in a body that’s not only just .71″ thick, weighing just 4.46 lbs, and sports the full complement of ports and accessories: FaceTime HD camera, dual microphones, SD slot, HDMI port, 2x Thunderbolt ports, dual USB 3/2 ports (flanking both sides), headphone out, MagSafe 2 port. Combined with 7 hour battery life and 30 days of standby time, a slew of new Retina-ready apps like Final Cut Pro, Aperture and Adobe Photoshop (imagine the menu possibilities), the next generation MacBook Pro with Retina has us just about bowled over in pixelated desire. As for those fan blades? An asymmetrical configuration means quieter operation.
